Tune Time - Play That Funky Music

Remember this funk song from 1976? Well, if you’re as old as I am, you probably do. Written by Robert Parissi and recorded by the band Wild Cherry, Play That Funky Music hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on September 18, 1976 and was also number one on the Hot Soul Singles chart. It was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for shipments of over two million records. In 2011, Facebook's 101 Greatest Everything page rated this song the #1 Greatest Funk Song Of All Time. It certainly deserves to be on that list.
